NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In a new report, KBRA examines the community and regional bank business model in the wake of certain high-profile bank failures in the U.S. KBRA believes that the business model for community and regional banks remains sound.
Given that well-managed community and regional banks can achieve cost structures that are competitive with the largest banks, they are not inherently subject to adverse selection with regard to risks, which creates the potential for attractive and sustainable risk-adjusted returns. Moreover, community and regional banks are generally better positioned to exploit local market knowledge, cultivate stronger local relationships, and deliver a more responsive level of service than their large bank peers. The sector also benefits from broad political support as it remains an important financial pillar of the economy, serving as a leader in providing financial services to the vibrant small and midsize business community.
